Trimley: Truck driver arrested after fatal crash has bail extended
A TRUCK driver arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving following a crash which claimed two lives on the A14 has had his bail extended today.
Police have not yet completed their investigations into the crash or decided whether the 49-year-old man from Dovercourt should be charged or released.
A police spokeswoman said the man had been re-bailed to November 15, when he will again see officers.
Christine Taylor, 59, of Wyken, died in the accident on the Felixstowe-bound A14, near the sliproad to the Trimley interchange.
Her 15-year-old grandson, student and keen carp fisherman William Taylor, of Welsh Road, Stoke, was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, but later died.

Officers said latest reports from the hospital say Mr Wall, who is in his 60s and lives at Clovelly Road, Wyken, Coventry, is “much improved”.
Police road traffic experts have been investigating the cause of the accident, which blocked the dual carriageway and led to extensive diversions on the Felixstowe peninsula.
It was one of three incidents during the afternoon of August 20 on the A14 near Felixstowe – preceded by traffic congestion caused by an incident at the dock spur junction, and followed by a collision between two other lorries near Seven Hills.
